This amazing photo by Dane Wiedmann reminds me of a toy aircraft carrier I had when I was 12. It's the F-35C CF-3 and CF-5 on the deck of the USS Nimitz during their first trials at sea.
The new iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 come with their own Apple SIM cards, theoretically letting you switch carriers whenever you choose. But AT&T isn't completely playing ball.
Everyone hates their carrier, right? That's just a thing.

Verizon just shook off the part owners of Verizon Wireless, the UK-based Vodafone, by stumping up a cool $130 billion. That is one serious move—though it's unclear what the newfound freedom means for the network.

As in axing the middle man and essentially becoming a carrier or ISP on its own. As in potentially using a 'Amazon Wireless'-type service to get on the Internet from our Amazon…
The human hand is a beautiful product of evolution. Each one a finely crafted arrangement of 27 bones, our hands are among the most dexterous in the animal kingdom, and are every bit as capable of threading a needle as they are grasping the oar of a canoe. But newly published findings suggest our palms and fingers may…
The USS Enterprise, the first nuclear aircraft carrier in the world, has been officially retired today at a ceremony in Norfolk, Virginia—special appearance by Captain Kirk included.

This photo of aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman is incredible—and it looks like a lot of fun too. I imagine the helmsman pushing the rudder and whispering "wowwheeeee!"
The new iPad is, by all reports, smokin' hot. What better way to make the most of its new LTE capabilities and amazing Retina display than telling somebody about it over FaceTime? Sorry, you're out of luck; the iPad still doesn't allow FaceTime over cellular networks.
Today is the 50th anniversary of the USS Enterprise CVN-65, the first nuclear powered aircraft carrier. Her first crucial role was in the Cuban Missile Crisis blockade, as part of the 2nd Fleet, in October 1962.
